Braces for every wonky tooth

Man ready for her bracesThe great thing about being an adult today is that in North London, braces are so discreet and small that there is no reason not to get one’s teeth straightened. Having straight teeth has numerous benefits. And, with so many different systems out there, teeth straightening really is worth investigating.

When it comes to braces in North London, several dentists, such as Denchic Dental Spa, have a range of straightening systems available. Each has different benefits, for the teeth, lifestyle and the patient’s bank account.

It is really worth finding out about several systems to get a feel for what is out there in terms of looks, treatment duration, and advantages to lifestyles. Many adults are put off having teeth straightening because they imagine it will involve wearing uncomfortable and embarrassing heavy-duty metal braces that obscure their teeth, make it hard to eat and speak, and take two years to do their work.

The good news is that this kind of braces are used mostly for young teenagers who need to have their bite altered as well as having their teeth repositioned. Moving the jawbones takes a lot longer than moving the teeth, and cannot be done in later life because the bone has lost its plasticity.

Discreet braces

Dental research has led to the creation of braces aimed at fulfilling the lifestyle needs of adults, top of the list of which is the need for discretion. No adult wants to go to work wearing adolescent icons, such as braces. Most would rather no one knew they were even receiving treatment, especially if they are in a position of authority, or a public-facing job, such as working in a bank, where it would mean fending off the stares of hundreds of strangers every day.

Dental researchers have come up with some ingenious ways to solve this issue through the development of invisible braces. One kind of braces has very small clear brackets and wires that make the braces look more like a tooth jewellery than medical equipment. Another kind goes on the backs of the teeth, where they are completely hidden. And yet another kind uses plastic mouth guard-like aligners that are so thin that once they are in place, they can’t be seen at all.
